Just look back at the post that resurrected this thread.

I had a Korean Fender Tele, it was a nice enough guitar but nowhere near some of the Deluxes I played, and the price difference wasnt that much $200-$300

Re: PRS comes clean.

Here's my main complaint. Say Epiphone will take some untrained guy off the street in America and has to pay him $10/hr and time and a half after 8 hours, or they can go to Korea and because the cost of living and labor conditions in that country arent the same as here they can get away with paying the guy $2/hr and make him work 12 hour days. The company is exploiting the Korean worker and the economic inequalities and people are cool with it because they can get something that looks like a $2000 guitar for $300. Then if an immigrant comes to this country to work and does the same job for cheaper but stays in this country people will scream about jobs being stolen from them. Legal or not it's a shady way to do business. I know it's the way of the world, but when I can do something about it I like to.
